Writing Police Reform
How have police forces and police work changed in the US over our 200 year history? And how do we make our stories of crime and punishment or social outrage and heroic sacrifices ring true to a reader, no matter the era? In this Research for Writers Seminar led by a noted police officer, take a journey from the policing concepts set forth by Sir Robert Peele in England to the reforms of today.
We will discuss the role of policing in the US from law enforcement’s involvement during our nation’s landmark civil and social change that created outcries for police reform to the sacrifices made during other eras that hailed them as heroes, as well as the changing roles of police officers and their relationship to their community. After a presentation, ample time will be available for questions and answers.
